It was not easy, but Rafael Nadal came back from a set down to defeat Martin Klizan 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to win his first grass match since the first round of Wimbledon, back in 2012.

It was also a very important triumph for the Spaniard, who became the 11th player in the Open Era to reach 700 career wins.

A huge milestone for Nadal, who will face Lukas Rosol in the second round, the same who had beaten him in the second round, two years ago. We can wager that history will not repeat itself this time.

Congratulations, Rafa!
